If so, would people be opposed to Read, Laughton, 1st? Allows them to acquire the top D they need, while keeping Couts, Schenn. They are loaded with C and Wingers, so losing Read and Laughton wouldn't hurt as bad. It would benefit a rebuilding Flames team very much, and help jump start this new direction. The first would have to be protected (if they miss the playoffs this year, we get 2014...) or it could be a 2nd 2013... Thoughts?
Read, Laughton and say a conditional first (either 2013 or 2014)? Yeah, I'd do that. Move Iginla to the Pens for one of their defensive prospects, ideally one of the more NHL ready players, and wishfully, Cammalleri with half salary retained for a first plus somewhere else. It would give the Flames 3 first rounders in a very deep draft, plus a forward ready to compete now in Read, as well as two solid prospects in Laughton and whichever Penguin defensemen they acquire.

But I don't believe the Flyers can take on Bouwmeester's contract without sending some kind of salary back. As such, the roster player would probably have to be Meszaros as opposed to Read. In which case, move Iginla to the Bruins for Spooner or Khokhlachev for a better balance.
